A Sheffield sports club hopes to replace one of its grass courts with an artificial one.
Fulwood Bowling and Tennis Club has applied to install the new surface at its premises in Chorley Road. The idea is to allow play during winter months.
The club also hopes to move perimeter fencing closer to Chorley Road, giving more room at the side of the court to make it a safer playing environment.
The fence would be 2.75m high and would be made of green chain link.
And the club wants to create a new artificial court on spare land behind its squash building.
Planning permission for new floodlights to light the artificial courts has already been granted.
On its website the club says it is the ‘guardian’ of Sheffield’s ‘only remaining three grass tennis courts’.
